Analysis
At 8:10 PM ET on Wednesday, we will be playing Under the Total in the game between the Washington Wizards (527) and the New Orleans Pelicans (528). THE SITUATION: Washington (11-6) has lost three of their last four games after their 109-103 upset loss as a 4.5-point favorite on Monday. New Orleans (3-16) has lost four of their last five games with their 110-96 loss to Minnesota as a 3-point underdog on Monday. REASONS TO TAKE UNDER THE TOTAL: The Wizards are playing great defense under rookie head coach Wes Unseld Jr. That Unseld is getting solid defensive contributions from Montrezl Harrell is extraordinary when considering he was pushed out of the Lakers’ rotation last season due to his play on that end of the court. Washington ranks 5th in the NBA in Defensive Efficiency. The Wizards have played 5 of their last 6 games Under the Total after a straight-up loss — and they have played 20 of their last 28 games Under the Total after a point spread loss. Now they go back on the road where they are holding their home hosts to just 41.7% shooting from the field which is resulting in only 100.9 PPG. Washington has played 6 of their last 8 games Under the Total on the road — and they have played 4 of their last 5 road games Under the Total against teams with a losing record at home. The Wizards rank just 20th in the league in Offensive Efficiency — and they are scoring only 100.0 PPG on the road. Additionally, Washington has played 6 straight Unders as a favorite — and they have played 5 straight Unders against teams not winning at least 40% of their games. New Orleans has played 8 of their last 10 games Under the Total after a straight-up loss — and they have played 7 straight Unders after a double-digit loss. The Pelicans rank just 26th in the NBA in Offensive Efficiency — and they are scoring just 96.4 PPG in their last five games. They stay at home where the Under is 11-2-1 in their last 14 games — and the Under is 8-2-1 in their last 11 home games as an underdog. New Orleans has also played 6 of their last 7 games Under the Total against teams with a winning record. FINAL TAKE: Washington won the last meeting between these two teams by a 105-100 with the Total set at 208 back on November 15th. These two teams have played 20 of their last 27 meetings Under the Total — and they have played 13 of their last 16 games in the Big Easy Under the Total. 10* NBA Wednesday Daily Discounted O/U Deal with Under the Total in the game between the Washington Wizards (527) and the New Orleans Pelicans (528). Best of luck for us — Frank.
